How to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the most significant relationship we can have. To know Christ and to make Him known is the heartbeat of MVBC. Below are some verses that outline the way of Salvation. I trust this will be a help to you. - Pastor Newton
1. Realize God Loves you
John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
2. We all have sinned

Not of works, lest any man should boast."
6. Salvation is secured
